Why did they put orange? And why did they give us orange rally towels couple years ago during the playoffs? Or were they t-shirts. I don't remember.

I'm honestly feeling we should just ditch the stick in general. Florida did this and it scaled up their logo. But if we keep it, then it should be the only orange "in the jersey". I'm pretty sure orange is a hot color in this area so they could still do other sharks marketing/clothing with orange used here and there.

Our away jerseys are the ugliest on TV btw. Ugliest by far.

They were those hideous Get Loud orange T-shirts.

They also did an orange rally towel, I know I have one in my collection. Think it was game 7 vs Detroit, but I'd have check.

Preds away jerseys look better IMO. Their home jerseys are disgusting though.

Icethetics mentioned the black jersey's were brought out at the draft because of the revamp, I doubt it, but I wonder when we will see or hear anything.

No it wasn't for that game. I went to games 5 and 7 that season. They were normal white rally towels. Maybe another series....

I agree about the black jersey. Come playoff time at the very least, I want Teal at home! Teal everywhere!!

Oh, even as a 3rd jersey, that would be a nice idea.

Generally speaking, from a design point of view, orange and blue are complementary colors. I don't know why nobody ever mentions this. However, they probably didn't use the best shades of orange and blue for that to work out. A darker teal and a darker orange probably would've been fine though.

So the fact that they used the black jerseys at the draft has me thinking it might be more than simply dropping the front numbers.

Doubt it. If we were having major changes I would expect some sort of unveiling ... nothing is scheduled.

The Sharks marketing department is not very good.. There last jersey announcement was a video of players looking at the jerseys.

I'm pretty sure they used it in 2010 draft too.

It doesn't matter if orange is a complimentary color of blue or teal, it's hideous to make it a part of the current Sharks jerseys. It was never meant to be a part of the original color scheme except for the coloring of the hockey stick in the Shark's mouth.

The current Sharks marketing department should be ashamed of themselves. They took a brand that was number 1 in selling gear and ran it into the ground. The real reason why the Black 3rd Jerseys are so popular is because they don't have orange on them. I own one because I will never buy a Sharks jersey or Sharks product with orange on it.

The real Sharks colors are Teal, Black, GRAY and White.

It's easy for the Sharks to fix the current jerseys:

1.) remove the insidious front facing numbers

2.)replace all orange with the color gray

3.) replace the jumping shark patches on the shoulders with the fin logos

not hard to do and the jerseys would be infiniteley better

So something like this?



I actually prefer the jumping shark over the fin.

If we can't go back to the originals or the second set (my preferred choice) I would want to do a complete overall. I have never had a real problem with the orange. I have just felt that the sweeter as a whole is so plain and bland that it makes it uninteresting. I am not sure exactly what the sharks could do in the edge template that would really be interesting though. It might just be smarter for them to wait and hope Reebok loses the rights to make all the of the Jerseys when it eventually comes up.
